AYATOLLAH MACHIAVELLI RE “THE RESISTANCE” [Oct. 14]: Your article’s notion that Ayatollah Ali Khamenei is willing to subject Iranians “to indefinite economic hardship rather than hold his nose, swallow his pride and do a deal with the U.S.” is totally absurd. The idea that Iran should try to strike another deal with a likely one-term American President, who has proved himself untrustworthy and intransigent, and who is about to be impeached, does not make any sense at all. Joseph Hannon,BOSTON THREE YEARS AGO, MY WIFE and I visited Iran. When the immigration officer at the Tehran airport gave us our U.S. passports back, he did so with a smile and said, “Welcome to my country, I hope you have a good time.” My blonde wife and I stood out like sore thumbs and…

the world after al-baghdadi

THE DEATH OF ABU BAKR AL-BAGHDADI MAY not change the world. Nevertheless, how it came about says a fair amount about the world he has departed. In the chain of events that led to the Oct. 26 demise of the ISIS leader, every link tells a story. But even as it crystallizes what the war on terrorism looks like 18 years after 9/11, al-Baghdadi’s death may mark the beginning of an uncertain new chapter. The first link begins with the government of Iraq, which in September arrested one of al-Baghdadi’s wives and a courier. Intelligence pointed to Syria, where the CIA was already working with the Kurdish militia. Both Iraq and the Kurds are committed enemies of ISIS. Iraqis suffered tens of thousands of casualties pushing ISIS out of their country from…

gm union members return to work, but worries are far from over

AFTER 40 DAYS ON THE PICKET LINE, General Motors autoworkers voted Oct. 25 to accept a new contract that offers salary increases and other concessions. The agreement may offer relief for more than 48,000 United Auto Workers (UAW) members after the longest nationwide strike against GM in nearly 50 years, but the standoff cost both the company and its workers dearly. CHANGING GEARS The new contract scraps the company’s bisected salary structure, under which workers hired after 2007 were paid less and had no way to reach the top salaries of longer-serving employees. The company will also invest $7.7 billion in U.S. factories, including $3 billion at a Detroit plant that had been scheduled to close in early 2020. But not all workers came out ahead. The agreement allows GM to…

a beta test for big tech’s clout

NAME A POLICY SUPPORTED BY A DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENtial candidate this year and odds are good it’s been passed into law in Seattle. The Emerald City has approved a $15 minimum wage (which Elizabeth Warren calls for); unveiled a domestic workers’ bill of rights (like the one Kamala Harris wants); and voted to tax the rich (a Bernie Sanders–backed plan), though that’s tied up in court. But Seattle’s business leaders are pushing back, pouring hundreds of thousands of dollars into an upcoming election in an effort to unseat the city’s progressive leadership in favor of contenders who, while still Democrats, take more moderate positions on fiscal issues. “There’s a basic feeling that [the city council] isn’t doing a good job, and we don’t want them to take actions that are going to…
